I scheduled an appointment to et into my car and get a new key the next day. He didn't show or call. When I called to see what was going on, he said he didn't see any cars at the address on google earth, and he wasn't interested in the job. My car was in the garage! This was a waste of my time and I'm very disappointed.

After buying my first house, i had to change some locks on some gates around. i called these guys to do the job and they quickly came out and finished the job fast. they charged me very cheap and definitely made me realize there are still some great businesses out there like this one. Top quality locks as well. I will be calling them in the future for anything i need.

I set an appointment with Albuquerque Lock & Safe to have my locks re-keyed. Their schedule was flexible and the technician who came out for the service was fast and professional. Even give me added service as the staff adjusted the keys for me at no cost, which was a nice gesture. Thanks!

Affordable Locks
My receipt says these guys. Apparently an hour of labor costs $179.00. I have an auto electric guy who charges $80.00. They quoted me $285.00 plus some labor. Never mind the cost of the keys, and the $50.00 service call. After some complaining, the mechanics returned some of my money, but let me promise that I am never using this company again.

Loc Doc did a great job fixing the passenger side lock on my 1994 truck. They did the job quickly and affordably, and I had no further problems with the door. I'd recommend them to anyone!
Tips & Advices
Locksmiths-in-training can receive foundational knowledge and skills through programs offered at technical colleges or vocational schools. These would include basic courses on lock mechanics and manipulation, along with general skills like business management. From there, most trainees seek an apprenticeship, where they work alongside a professional locksmith. This allows them to gain experience in the field. It can also put them on a course toward certification.
Upon arrival to your home, a locksmith should ask you to prove that it is in fact your residence. They should also be able to unlock most common locks without requiring them to be drilled or completely replaced. Be sure to obtain an invoice that lists all charges before agreeing to pay.
  • If possible, research local locksmiths online and take note of any that have poor reviews or complaints.
  • When calling a locksmith, confirm their address matches what you found online or in a directory. Then ask for a cost estimate for the service you need, and ask to have them bring a written copy of this estimate.
  • Some states require locksmiths to be licensed. If your state is one of them, require the locksmith to bring proof of registration when they arrive.
The term locksmith traditionally referred to people who designed and built locks, but today is generally used for those who repair and replace locks. Locksmiths can be available on-call to help people if they're locked out of their home or apartment.
  • First, determine the type of lock you have, as well as the manufacturer or model if possible. You should also obtain measurements of your door and frame.
  • Remove exterior and interior knobs by unscrewing any visible screws you find. Many knobs will include a decorative cover on the interior side that can be removed.
  • Once you've removed the entire lock, find the screws on the inside of the door frame to remove the latch or deadbolt.
  • With everything removed, repeat these steps in reverse order to install the new lock.
